      This was a very good episode and I've come to like the episodes with ST stars in them. I met Wheaton and Burton a couple of weeks ago at Austin Comic Con and Wil was very nice. I told him it was a good thing he didn't cancel out like he did to Sheldon many seasons ago! He joked about it. Burton does not interact with people nearly as much as some of the other TNG stars. But back to the episode. I didn't know exactly what was going on with the maps intro but figured it had to be nerdy and it did right away when Wheaton came on. Then we got the argument with Amy and all that transpired because of it. Sheldon was a riot in his "proper" way of standing up for his girlfriend and getting inebriated at the bar. There was also the side story with Howard and Bernadette. Sometimes the antics with his mom verge on the disgusting! But they are always humorous. The show seems to have recovered a bit from the deep interpersonal relationships line and has been somewhat more fun returning more to its roots.moreless

      From last weeks nerdiness, to a relationship episode.



      Nice to see Mayim Bialik's injured hand getting better.



      Vexillology raised it's head again with the entry of Wil Wheaton and Star Trek flags, giving Amy her chance to direct a "minor" celebrity and insult him along the way.



      Poor Sheldon, so ridiculously egocentric that he can't see that his girlfriend feels insulted by his hero that he later has to ask Penny about girls.



      The iced tea section cracked me up with Penny's comment that Long Island Iced Tea "calmed the pants off me a couple times" and Sheldon admitting he was coerced into having her as a friend "Leonard made me like you! That was a hard row to hoe!".



      Priceless moment when Sheldon realised he'd only knocked twice on Wheaton's door and later barfed into the bushes.



      This was very much relationship themed and was fine but the writers need to balance the geek factor in as well.



      Overall, pretty funny but was always going to have a hard time against last weeks ep.moreless
    • Very disappointing

      5.0
      After each episode of the series being slightly better than the last one, this was straight back into the slump - not a funny line in the show, just a load of tedious relationship stuff for Sheldon/Amy and Howard/Bernadette - every time they take this path it completely kills the episode.



      Hoping this is just a mis-step after the last 4 which have been the best run in a couple of years.moreless
